Quote from phillipsrn
A nurse participated in Texas Peer Assistance Program for Nurses (TPAPN) for chemical dependency for the 3rd time and I think it that too many time that the program is trying to help out a nurse! I believe it should be revoke! What do you think?
I might wish that you consider two things:
The nurse chose to participate in the TPAPN chemical dependency program, thus admitting that "there's a problem here".
It is a good thing that Texas makes available such a program, rather than legally nuking the nurse's career.
Yes, he/she apparently has a substance abuse problem. I suspect that everybody on Allnurses.com might be prone to some sort of problem, whether it might be chemical dependency, behavioral, technical, psych, or whatnot. No matter how "perfect" you or I might be, we are all weak imperfect little critters. If you feel otherwise, I might request that you reconsider your feelings.
